Beatles most important decision...
« on: February 07, 2012, 10:31:43 PM »

Think hard now (I really think there is only one answer, but this should be fun...)
What do you think was the single most important decision made by anyone pertaining to the Beatles, whether it be the group or administration or anyone, that benefited the group.

Ya' know, Klang...there are going to be arguments galore on this one, but you certainly named an important one...we'll see what they all think.

What's this doing in polls?
This isn't a poll.
It's a discussion.

To go to okay in Hamburg Germany is without abdoubt what made them into the band they became. Many people who knew them swear that when they left Liverpool they were a half ass band without a drummer. They were known as tag alongs mostly who couldn't really play that well. However, when they came back from hamburg, they were an amazing live act with stage presence and perfect harmonies. I read a book called Outliers, and it says that someone who spends ten thousand hours or more on a subject becomes great at it and successful. They had a whole chapter on the Beatles and how playing in hamburg was the crucial element which turned them into the greatest band in the world.

Somehow I sensed this was going to go into the direction of going to Hamburg with Pete Best.

Probably John and Paul's decision to start making music together...

Going to Hamburg has nothing to do with Pete Best Bobber, im talking strictly from the group sucking to learning how to actually play their instruments, be in key, and learn to entertain because they were playing 6 hour sets three times a day. I also think that the decision to allow Brian Epstein as their manager was the most important decision as well. That man totally changed their image and cultivated/marketed them. He used all his resources and energy to get them a recording contract and to get them exposure. Without hiring him, we would not know who the Beatles are today.

I was hoping to read what some of this sites big guns (Bobber, Nimrod, Hello Good-bye, Tkitna etc) thought...
I personally think it was John Lennon's decision to accept Paul McCartney into the Quarrymen after careful consideration.

i probably know as much about the Beatles as the main biographers we have all heard of from writing the books and on every documentary/interview...I have been studying and going to places of importance in Beatles history since i was 3 yrs old and at that young age i was introduced to all of it by my father.

No im not..I'm just a huge huge Beatles fan who has tried to learn and dissect everything and anything involved with the Beatles. I was actually thinking of writing a book. I've read four Beatles books this month and last month two John Lennon books. I've read all of Mark Lewisohn's books published so far, as well as Geoff Emmerick's book I just finished. It's so hard to know alot of things because of the passage of time, and also certain people's memories or legacies being enhanced or tarnished. So you really have to read EVERYTHING involved that you can. Paul McCartney is the biggest culprit as far as enhancing his own legacy while diminishing the contributions of others.

IMO, thier greatest decison was to break up, thus leaving us while they were completely at the top of their game - Abbey Road.

It enhanced their legend even more.
